marathon. bob orr speaking to his sources have told us that at least 12 people have been hurt. we do not know whether will anyone has been killed in these explosions. there's been no claim of responsibility if, in deed, it was a deliberate act which we do not know yet. what you are seeing now is the boston police response. this is the immediate after math of these explosions whichthe last half hour. we have been able the see in the videotape that's coming into us various people clearly injured but conscious as they have been treated lying next to the line there at the boston marathon. let's look at the still photograph that seems to have captured the moment of an explosion at the finish line. here it is again. this apparently captures the moment within . witnesses say there were two explosions, one blast followed shortly thereafter by another. some witnesses described it as sounding like thunder. bob orr has been talking to his sources in washington. what do you know now? >> well, the information is coming in slowly. we're told now that of course the race is going on there the runner

correspondent bob orr has been talking to his sources all afternoon and, bob, what can you tell us about the investigation so far? >> reporter: scott, at this hour there is no suspect in custody. we are told, though, by officials that there is a young man who they are talking to who quote/unquote could be potentially linked. but it's very, very early on and it's far too strong to say this is a suspect. this is someone who was seen near the site of the blast acting suspiciously and they have to run that to ground to find out if he had any involvement at all. we know there were two devices that exploded. think had been placed in trash cans. there are also two unexploded devices that were recovered near the finish line and that can be very important because those unexploded bombs and also the remnants of the exploded bombs could provide the kind of forensic evidence that might eventually tell us who put them together, how they were put together and where this attack originated. but right now let's be clear, this is a wide-open investigation field. the suspects range from international

can cause brain trauma. >> bob orr is in our washington newsroom. bob what are you hearing? >> scott, as you pointed out the boston marathon folks are now labeling this twin bombs, the government will not go that far but i have to tell you that they were preceding down the belief that that is very likely what happened here. i mean what is influencing their thinking here is the coordinated or apparently coordinated nature of this. you have one explosion, that takes place, and then a short time later as you have been showing folks, in a fairly close distance a second explosion, that seems to indicate some level of orchestration, some level of planning and coordination. we want to be careful because there is no hard evidence at this point that these were deliberately planted but if this were to be some kind of attack, domestic or foreign, among the things that those kinds of group was look for would be a high casualty count, a crowded area, it would be an extra plus to do it near an area where there is lots of security, ie the finish line and there would be more than one device. so thos

orr in washington has been working his sources. bob, what are you hearing. >> the investigation no doubt focuses squarely on former justice of the peace eric williams. police will not call him quote, unquote, a suspect in the murders. as manual told us he denied any involvement and has not been charged in the killing. however we're told investigators turned up new evidence in searches over cric in the end in thisprove case. have to say almost from the very beginning, williams has been very high if not at the top of that potential suspect list. see, he w guy prosecuted by mark hase and district attorney mike mclelland. sources say mclelland himself was suspicious of williams after hase's murder in january. in the end, renge could be arirtly relatebeing held on to the murders. is this part of some larger strategy by law enforcement? >> i think you could say so, yes. he's being held for making quote ferrostic threats. authorities won't tell us what that means. he is being held under an extremely high $3 million in bond. so in effect, all of that serves as a holding charge. that allows

widow of the bombing suspect tamerlan tsarnaev. bob orr reports. >> reporter: sources say female dna has been found on a fragment of one of the bombs used in boston. that could have come from a spectator in the crowd or maybe from a clerk who sold the bomb making materials but investigators say it's also possible it could have come from a female accomplice. katherine russell is not a suspect and has not been charged in the plot. but fbi agents met with russell at her parents' rhode island home to collect a dna sample. investigators will compare that against the dna found on the bomb remnants to determine if she ever came in contact with the device. russell's family has issued a statement saying they were shocked by the attack. investigators want to question russell to find out if she had any knowledge of her husband's plans. the fbi is also taking a fresh look at tamerlan tsarnaev's six-month trip to russia and dagestan in 2012 to determine if he received training from known terrorists. of particular interest a russian born canadian militant. like tsarnaev, he was a boxer and both men we

correspondent bob orr in washington. bob, what can you tell us about the current situation? >> i think don wrapped it up pretty well for us, anne-marie. but here's the deal. there's no doubt in officials' minds that as he reported, that one of the bombing suspects is dead. he was seen in the videotape. he was the guy in the darker hat right there at the front of the picture there with his jacket unzipped in the dark hat and the backpack. he has been shot apparently and killed. the man right behind him there about ten paces behind him with the white hat on backward and on the right of your screen here, he is still on the loose. we don't know a great deal about who these guys are. the fbi is still trying to pin down their exact names. the reason i say exact is because they've been looking through a lot of names, potential aliases and other things, and it's been a little confusing. and until we have the names pulled together, we won't know exactly where these guys are from or what their background might be. there are some indications -- and i just want to say we have to be a little
